PODCAST: SportsDaz Football – Thursday, 22nd July 2021

Darren Kelly and Niamh Kindlon look back on the second round of action in the TG4 All-Ireland Championships and look ahead to this weekend’s final round-robin games.


  • Weekend Review (0:00)
  • Emma Kelly – Antrim manager (21:45)
  • Preview – Donegal vs Kerry (42:30)
  • Preview – Meath vs Tipperary (50:20)
  • Preview – Tyrone vs Waterford (55:25)

Eight teams have reached the quarter-finals in the top two tiers while Cavan and Monaghan are out of the senior championship.  We look back on Mayo’s shoot-out win, Galway’s goal blitz, Armagh’s drive to the line and another massive result for Leitrim.

Armagh, Mayo, Cork, Dublin and Galway will contest the senior quarter-finals; while Leitrim, Kildare (positive scoring difference – ignore Darren’s bad maths :D) and Down in the intermediate final eight.

Following their shock loss to Derry the previous week, Antrim stormed back into junior championship contention with a 5-20 to 2-13 victory over Carlow after extra-time.  We chat to Antrim manager Emma Kelly about their turnaround in fortune.

And we look ahead to the senior championship games this week which are effectively preliminary quarter-finals – Kerry vs Donegal, Tipperary vs Meath, and Tyrone vs Waterford.
